Baseball fans have witnessed some crazy things so far in the 2013 World Series. Instead of going into an in-depth analysis of the World Series, I want to share with you my thoughts on this year’s Fall Classic.
The Red Sox kicked off the World Series last Wednesday night with an extra-long session of batting practice… against the Cardinals. The game was like a car wreck – you felt bad for the victims but it was almost impossible to look away.
Boston, put your brooms away. By winning Game 2, the Cardinals assured baseball fans that the 2013 World Series wouldn’t be a repeat of the 2012 World Series when the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers.
The Red Sox and Cardinals’ offenses partook in an intense game of tug-of-war. It was basically a game of “I can do it better” that ended in a controversial, yet correct, call from Umpire Jim Joyce.
Rookie mistake: Don’t get picked off, it might end the game. Final score: 4-2, Boston.
Crucial turning point for the Red Sox. Not only did they win back to back nights, but by doing so they also took a 3-2 lead in the series.
The Rest of the Series
We always hear about how important Game 7 of the World Series is. Everything gets more exciting when sports teams compete down to the straw. As crucial as a 7th game would be, in this case Game 6 is more important. Game 6 will determine whether the Red Sox win the Fall Classic, or if the Cardinals will make a mad dash for Game 7. MLB history is unfolding right before us, and it is resting on this next game.
Game 6 will be played back in Boston on Wednesday, October 30 at Fenway Park. A victory for the Red Sox would secure the first World Series Title for the Franchise at Fenway Park since 1918. A victory for the Cardinals in Game 6 would leave you with a difficult decision. Would you rather Trick or Treat?
